Update:  31-year-old Randy Garrison appeared with his attorney of record, Robyn Goodwin. This morning’s hearing in Ray County was a Pre-emptory hearing during which the defense asked for a reduction of the $100,000 bond that has been set for Garrison. He is being charged with two felony counts of abandonment of a child in the first degree after his two sons were found dead in their home that caught fire on the 10th of December. Garrison was arrested on March 20th following the investigation into the deaths of his two sons, 3-year-old Roger Garrison and 22-month-old Ashton Garrison. According to the probable cause statement, Garrison’s story changed on several occasions during the investigation. Emergency responders that were on the scene were not able to corroborate some of Garrison’s versions of the events that day. During today’s hearing the prosecution objected to the bond reduction. Judge James Thompson has taken the request under advisement pending formal petition by the defense. Garrison remains in custody in the Ray County jail.  His next court appearance is scheduled for May 13th at 8:30 a.m.
